Thanksgiving & Ordination Service of Bethany Faith Ministries
Bethany Faith Ministries held their Thanksgiving and Ordination Service on Saturday 2nd December 2017 at Greenford Hall in Ruislip Road. This service was organised to thank God for his extreme Grace for permitting 22 years of His Ministry and to ordain 5 new Pastors.

At 6.30pm the Candidates to be ordained walked in led by our Founder and Senior Pastor Rev. T.M.I.Sathiyaraj and the Special Pastor. Rev. Dr. John Gnanasekar who arrived from Canada to preside the evening, along with Dr. Christy, who is one of our Trustee. Praise and Worship was conducted immediately thereafter with Rev. T.M.I. Sathiyaraj steering it.

Special invitee Rev. Dr. John Gnanasekar delivered the Word of God. In a short but a sharp speech he detailed the goodness of our God. This was followed by the Ordination of the Candidates.

Firstly Sister Sanchiya Amitha Suthesh was ordained by Rev. T.M.I.Sathiyaraj and prayed for by Rev. Dr. John Gnanasekar. She is the wife of our Associate Pastor Rev. K.Suthesh and was doing full time God's Ministry for over 18 years. She will continue to assist Rev. K.Suthesh in the Kenton area.

Secondly Sister Baleshwary Thasan was ordained. She is the wife of Brother Jesuratnam Thasan, who was also ordained immediately after her. They both are in full time ministry and are placed in our Norwich branch.

Then Brother Thomas Justin was ordained. He conducts ministry in the Main Church in Southall.

Following the Ordination, the Announcements were read out and Offerings were collected. The Choir of Bethany Kenton, Bethany Sinhala and Bethany Southall, each sang a Special Thanksgiving Song whilst the Kids of Bethany Norwich participated in a Dance.
